Design around your “triangle”

When you are remodeling your efficient kitchen, you should always design with your “triangle” in mind. A kitchen triangle refers to the most efficient way to place the three key components of your kitchen: The sink, the stove and the refrigerator. The idea is that if you place these items in a “triangle” shape in the kitchen, you will create ample space to work efficiently, and be freely able to move between these key appliances.

Think about multitaskers

Instead of filling up your kitchen with items one item for one task, look for appliances and fixtures that can accomplish two goals instead of one for optimal efficiency. A dual-action stream-to-spray kitchen faucet not only makes dishwashing a breeze, but eliminates the need to install an additional sprayer with a standard stream faucet. Our VIGO Edison Pull-Down Spray Kitchen Faucet is a desirable addition to any kitchen thanks to its modern gooseneck and spiral details. It looks right at home in a contemporary kitchen, or styled in a rustic farmhouse kitchen. For an edgier look, try our VIGO Zurich Pull-Down Spray Kitchen Faucet, which features a separate aerated stream pot filler for cooking and washing hands, and a commercial-style pull-down sprayer for daily dishwashing all in one sleek fixture.

Organize, organize, organize!

If there’s a place for everything (and everything is in its place!) your efficient kitchen is guaranteed to run smoothly. Be savvy and strategic with the storage solutions in your kitchen. Your cooking utensils, pot holders and spices should be stored near the stove. Storing your daily-use dishes and utensils nearest to the sink or dishwasher will make them quick to put away once they’re clean. The less time you spend hunting for items around the kitchen, the quicker you can get things done!

Appreciate your space

Take notice of the space in your kitchen, and think of the ways you can improve or increase the functionality. A double bowl sink can create a functional solution that makes even the busiest home kitchens more efficient. Connect one side to the garbage disposal to ensure you’ll always have access, and enough room, to place the dishes. Use one side to soak stubborn messes off a roasting pan, leaving another side free to fill water glasses. The VIGO Matte Stone Double-Bowl Farmhouse Sink offers functionality with a distinctive, apron-front style. If it’s a sleek look you’re after, opt to install an undermount model like the spacious VIGO 32” Suffolk Stainless Steel Double Bowl Undermount Kitchen Sink.
